Brother and sister Martin and Hilda Massie lead a quiet, Christian existence in the confines of the Bluebell Hill Development. Just as they are preparing for a housewarming gathering, their peace is shattered by a young trespasser in their garden. The Massies' neighbours congregate in their living room and they form a neighbourhood watch group. But after the Massies' beloved garden gnome is thrown through their window, matters swiftly escalate, complicated by Martin's burgeoning romance with Amy, wife of Gareth, who was formerly involved with Luther, husband of Magda… what begins as a well-intentioned scheme for a safer community ends in violence and acrimony.

Praise for Neighbourhood Watch
"this timely and provocative play rivets attention throughout. There are some blissful comic moments and even that staple of Ayckbourn’s dramatic world, an ornamental garden gnome, has a crucial part to play." Charles Spencer, Telegraph
"This superbly acted, painfully funny and truthful play shows Ayckbourn in no danger of slowing down or having his age yet catch up with the number of plays he has written." Mark Shenton, The Stage
